Subject: Silent Era Acting
I think it's interesting to watch Farnum act. He's clearly from the silent era. Will the person who put up this film contact me? I'd like to ask some things about it.

Subject: 10 Nights in a Barroom
I was in this play many years ago. It is a very important piece of history. 10 nights and "the Drunkard" were two plays that helped to bring about prohibition. It is important historically and, when you know the history of saloons in America, it is accurate. Worth watching for this reason if no other.

Subject: Heavy melodrama about alcohol.
The film is a melodrama but does try to show the effects of drinking on an alcoholic in a more real manner than most films of the times.This film was shot and released in an era when most drunks on in the movies were shown as funny. The story line in this film shows a man who begins to drink and becomes an alcoholic and how it effects his family including his little girl who still loves him.
